//as Aroused An Interest 
In The Study of Caffeine 




IITE BELIEVE HONESTLY. 
'* DOCTOR fhat controvetsicd discussion 
of Coca-Cola has done more to cause mvesti- 
gators lo dig deep into ihe subject of caffeine 
Ihan any other influence during the last decade. 
We are glad — not only because it shows 
the widespread popularity of the beverage, 
but because the deeper and more scientific 
the investigation the more completely the 
wholesomeness of Coca-Cola is proven. 



Investigation by the 
Unprejudiced Scientist 

Has Proven These Facts 

C That Caffeine is a "True" stimulant. 

C That Caffeine has no secondary or depressant 

effect 
C That Caffeine is not habit forming. 
tL That in its physiological value Caffeine is closely 

related to a food. 
C That Coca-Cola is harmless— whoJesome and 

beneficial.

To-day, I wish cfleh one of yon l"o ftsk herself with greal L^auteat-

fbe prafession of iiiirsing as splendid a cflllinE aa it tvit? intended it 
i^hoiUd h^l At'c ^Te alive to lliose pas^5^hi]it^efl^ and arfi we ready to 
supply competent ivoikers lot all thoso lines of activity where i>nr?eB 
are needed? And the burdi^n of my message lo you to-day ia to point 
our Ihfit ^v[^ fall short, and s^hy do we do sol 

Two facts stimd ont— wr have not fht^ malcriat lo Irain for those 
][iipar[aiit positionSn and we taav^ not that material, because we have 
3iol insi^led on a proper edncalive course for onr women. We have 
gone on in tt more or less Ijlind waVn aiul ns one in a dfipp foresl at 
Hrst finds the f^ftl■kllea5 im]>rnet]-?ibli^ biit gradually grows accustomed 
to ifj and can see passably well, nurae?; have b^^en struggling on, and 
have grown accustomed lo the lack ol" the educative light, hut now 
hi-i^ht light breaks in, and wc know th^i the old order is wvong. not 
only to the women sludenl>i. but wrong to the sick And wrong lo the 
]3alion, for ivf>. as r4?presi-^ntfl lives of (he profession^ hav<^ not prepared 
women for the many posts in ihr broad preventive campaign, which 
is of infinitely more imporlance than the curative- 

FoigeE Ih^ past nijfjlak^^s ^nd i^t^n-t a syatmu of nuisc education on 
inoper eduPfliive liiu^s, eatahlisb schools, ihe ^S-atson dVtre*^ of Tvhich 
will be the education of the nurse in all branches of nursing, l^et us 
have i>iir inslitutioua for the earc of Ihr siek managed Uy i^sperts

slndents lo cut ihnnselv^^s off from all of the ordin^sry means of cul- 
hirt* while they are training. This wif] cost more monf^y, and ii is time 
it did^ bul ill the end it will be more econamieal, beeaase it wih mkkt 
for more efficient serviec and better Nalisficd workers. 

Here it will be seeji ho^v onr r^Fonn lead^ to ai]othKr. Lpt us urge 
on everyone ih^ necessity for evolving another F;ys!em for (he financ- 
ing of our hospilals. Fancy, in this century, in Ehis enlightened age^ 
lag dnyi^ and similar abominalions! ~What we need are hospitab^ 
hihrL]K-ed by ih*> mnuicipality, hut manag^^d by an ejected Board of 
TjuKt^eH, Then ilic institutions would be on a dignified hasis. the 
maihagei^ would kiio"^v what they eoilld draw on, and thert^ would be 
some hopf- of scientific management 

Those facis^ you as nurses knoiv, aitd you know (hem better tlian any 
other class of workers^ and you a]"e the ones by whom light must he

EEPOBT OP THE COMMITTEE ON AFFILIATION. 
Madam President: 

Yonr cominittse has the honor of submitJing tht following report^ 
feeling that all the members are convinced of the advisability of 
uniting all nnraing societies in Canada under one general head^ yet 
preserving their individnnlily ni]d providiiig for the di^cn^^sidn of 
the various problems before Ihat section of the nursing profession 
immediately interested in them, without losing sight of the interests 
of the whole, hy Ihis means doing ftway vriih the raultiplieity of meet- 
ings that are such a tax on the hiifty nurse. We^ therefore^ reeom- 
mend: 

First: One N'ational Society c<jnsia(ing of three sections^ one for 
the snperinlendents of the training schools and teachers of nurses^ 
one for llu^ puhlit^ health nursfs, and one for the discussion of general 
nuriiing affairs. Tiiis Xalionat ^^oeie)y lo relatn ils own name. Each 
of the affiliated soei^lies or i^'Clions to elect ila own ofliccrB and mflu- 
age its own aJTair;;. The preaidenla of the seclions to aiitomnlically 
become members of [he Board oF Diri^etorfl nf the N?itiona] Soeicly, 
Qkch section lo clepi one other mimbr-r of thai bosrd. in tliis way secur- 
ing 2^1 c quale rpprssentation. 

Second; That eanh of 1lu'S^^ si^ctions of the NWioual body be 
madu u|> of loeal and provinciwl aist^oeialions. with Ihe same aiinsj Ihat 
each cily or county hav^ ili^ own r^haiter. si'hieh would he ai> int<^fira! 
part of thf" Provincial Nmaea^ Association. The Ptovineial Society in 
Ihe s;ime way having nii inbrrship in the Na-tjonal Society wilhnni any

Third: Tliat all fees he paid inio Ihi^ ireaaury of the local i=H^eiely, 
wiiich would pay suflifti^nt per e:iplta lax to ad<^C[nately niaintnin tho 
larger Koeiely. so that each nnr^e would hjive only one set of dues (o 
pay. Individual inenibera of (he >Jalional SoeJety to continue to pay 
tho present rate.

CommuEdcalion from Ihe SiiperintoddenU' Society iras thiMi read 
by Miss Phillips. 

Pri^f?ident : Wbai action do you ^vant fallen? The rc^eomtnendation 
is th^i a ful^ committee of six from the two societies he appointed, 
four appointi^d hy ihe Canadian Xalional. two from the superintond- 
enESn and (he convener to he a member of fhe Canadian Narional, to 
work toy^fther and draw up a report- Two ore to b? those working 
in some hrant^h of public health. 

Mi&s "Wright: I should suggest thai the other two menibf^rs of 
tbfll. be privnle nurses, beeanst^ private nnrses are ao seldom repre- 
fiented at these meeting? on account of Iheir inability to be always 
present. 

Mis^j Qunn : 1 think the only reason the superintendents limited 
it to three clssse-s was b^enuRc^ in Miss Madden 'a reporl she recom- 
mendM "the three flections for the society, and T think that Ihe private 
nurses come under Ihe Canadian Nfitionah 

President: The logical thing would be to appoint representativea 
from the private unrseBp hecauae that is the section we are looking 
to in ihf fuinre. How should that committee be appointed? Are yon 
in favor of having that committee appointed a^ outlined hy the fiuper-

either ou amalp^uialion^ f(^deration. or affilialioi]. II was merely that 
we wauted to ^vork out the ethrme. whethe]^ federatioti. amitlgrimft- 
tioDj or afftliatiou, and these t^vo committers have been working, and 
they pi^ejaented the report. It was felt m the Superini^^iidents' So-

dealt with again by a e^jinn^ittef that wns representative of Ihe three

see, wf have not doufi any(hing yf*t. 

Miss Handwl : f think, MIm Proaby. the reason wr used the word

Ir That then? is h g^^ii^ritl feeling rjf diHRatin^fHelion nmonp nurse

2, Th^ nnrEie Iraijiiiig iA nnt ai siiflifti^i][ly '^rtncfttive course, because : 
(ft) it docs riot fievdop character as ivcll as it should: (b) it does not 
fufly fit the Troiiiijik for the praeTic^^ of Iheir profession. The course 
at present has a tendency !d preveaiT th^ hrcad di^vt^lopnieiil of Ihe 
whole ^omau, »nd on ihe pvofeasimial isidi^ Irfliii^h only in hospi'ail 
nursing.

are expected (o profit hy lectures, when Ihey are physically ^vorci otiL 
Ofton they are ohlif^ed to listen fo Icelures fr&ra people \rholly ijn- 
fitted to ddivcr them. Then, whi^^n the three years' hard work is 
over, Ihey find themselvt-s Irained only in One line of nursing. 

The anggeeled remedies: Establish nurse Irainine sehools or eoT-

the '^raisoTi d'etre'' of which will be llie eduealion cf the nurse, not

sliould pl^y in Any si^beiai? of vacHtiDJi^l training adopted by th^ 
pr[>vineefl, ' ^ 

A furtber recommendation is^ That Uie whol*; matter be con- 
sid**rrd caiTmly — noi frflm ihe perjuufl] afandpoitit, but from that of 

MART ARD. MA0KEN-7JE, It_\\, Oonv«tier. 

Prcaidciit . This 3s merely ^ jU'^tiTiLinairy sftlii^me, and Ihe firsl step 
we ^hall take i^ to pf>in| mil Ih^.' irnpeif^c^lion^i in ihe h-aiiiiii^ j^nd 
get U on A proper hasis. Th^ idi^a k thai wi? ro about il slowly. That 
K, start ^melhing and see what can be done, and work hy lu^ing 
enisling jnstilutions. The suggestion waa made by one oE the uni- 
Tersity presidents Ihal "^ft ^vnrk it onl in some one place first, aay^ for 
jHStance, whate^ver piovincr lA mos^t enlerprising. and most strong 
4>n the edneational standing, Tf ihsl province ^vnnld updeHnke to 
w'ork i( out fla a tentative pJan th^l ^vould "be a very good thing in- 
deed, and ^vculd nol eau^e as mui^h ii^heavsl as if we fned 1o do it too 
J^niekly. 

Another suggestion T^'as. in Tvorl^iitg nn( 1his ^chemp. that we nse 
exiMing inslilutions. for instance, in places where there ai^ technical 
colleges, sehools of doineatie seience. ete., thai have part of Ihe uork 
that Ihe nnrst^a net^d^ that these be usf-d, and the idf^a is Ihar all the 
provincE^s Ti'ork o\U sortie aciheme on Ihese plans. Qel iijLo loueh with 
the educational system of ejleh provincFi and are what cnn be do^e, 
have eslitJiales drawn up, and flll Ihat kind of ihin^. Some "help mipht 
be given m tht various provinces from (he Impr-ria] GovCTUTnent. so 
as to turlher jhiil plan of nujse edtication. Thai, T Ihink. could be 
done if it wflJ* -^vorked in th^ propter way- 

So that in prescnling ihis report, wft presem it with the idf-n that 
il will bif takt^n as a sugg^^stion, and Ihal it will be worked nnl jia 
^luiekly as possaiblv^ bul slowly, if n4>ee^aTj\ in the vanous provinces, 
iviih H view of getting in as short a time fia po^^sihle, thiR ideal plan 
thai 1 think all the members of the cominiltce feel is und should he a 
relief, and in a very few years we will have nms(^ eduealion on » 
proper baj?i<5 Jhrongboiit th^; Dnniinion. This is ihe lepori. ami I heg 
to inove i|^ adoption. 

Miss Wright: How inai]y nnraes wcfe on that conimillce? 

PresidoTitt We were to have ^ix nn^aea and Ihree la-ymm. Miss 
Slewarl, nnfoHunately^ had lo fall out. Misis Rfindai 1 bad aaked 
to serve on the eommitlce and hoptd she would i^cmaJn^ but as I 
got Ihis rip03-t rather late, il was nol Jfiss I^nndal's fanlt^ but prob- 
ably mine, so ihal I was not in time to appoint another- representa- 
tive. So we have on that eonnniltee fom' nurst^s and three laymen. 

Miss "Wright: Pei^onally^ I do nol appi^ave of any coEnmillce 
formed of laymen. I am not a superifttendent, so I fee! T ean say ihia.

charneler in the young women ivlao are with us for three ycflrs- Surely 
it is not aa bad as Ihat report would indicate. 

Miss Mathie^on: I fe^I as the last speaker said, that we are 
editdaltng. When a man leaves college he btauehen &ut into the line 
in which he wishes to spet^iali^e^ and the nurse can do the Rame tiling* 

Miss Cotter: I ^m not a superintendenl. but I would like t& sFty 
two or three words. These yonng women enter the training school 
ready to think for themselves and jiet for themselves. T think this is 
the point. Very off^n^ and I ^vonld like to bring in right here cjne 
of the points brought out in the paper Uat night read by Miss ftcovil, 
perhaps the nurses could be educated in a ditTercnt way while in the- 
hospil?i1, flnd that is by having each class organised- "We know, as 
organi^tions at lea^tT, w^hftn w^c try to get uew members to ael as pre- 
sident, as secretary, that they are wholly untitted to do it^ I think that 
could be one of the ways fbat nurses could he educated^ and so fee^ 
Ihey had jusr n Utile mor? freedom of speech, and less of the nervous- 
n(^5s ainl sinking feeJing at Ihe knees Mint we esperienee when we get 
up to speiikn

I r^radualtd our classes are orgHniKed- They have Iheir pre^dentp 
vice-preaident. and treasurer. Comnimaiesilions go to tiu^ nuraea 
ihrongh flie preHidenL If we wanl anything done in the school, we 
simply interview the pre^idenl of the class^ and she takes charge 
of the matter. Very often the nui-aeg wiEiL to have fiome financial 
(Jnefln and each nurae pays so much a month dueft into Eh^i elaas trca- 
sury. 

Miss Cotler; I knew Jt had been don^^ on the other .side, hut 1 
vaji nat aware it was being pradiaed in any hospital in Canada. 1 
fliji ver}' glad to ht^ar that It is a step in the right direction, 

MisK Madden: Our clnsBeis are all or^flniited and hnv^- pr<^sident

Mifis Uotteri Are ib^ class gmvances taken up by tht.^ jiresidentn 
or are nurses slill difimisscd in the old way without a real hearingl 

Miss Gunn: I really rhink they aire geltitiE ^iuite progreesiTe. 
AbnuE Ihe lime I went to Ibe Toronto General thei-p was a eoiamittee 
appointed on the library, and the pupil nurapa had given it iurtnin 
sum of money towJtrds ibe library. Shortly after 1 weni ihere one 
of Ihe medical men offered 10 give Ibe mu'ses a reference library. Fe 
was rather slow abou( doing it. and 1 did not want to give bim a list 
of the books we needed without some j-ireparation, T wrote (o the 
iarg^^l liospitals to see what books were much used. At the same time

A Meraber: Tto^^ the nurse's training during the three years fit 
Ler for anything outride but jns! obeying the d&ctor's orders? "With 
our nur«c& on the other tiide^ when they are wanted for public health 
work, eehoo! nurata. eJc, they have lo start over agairi- The majority 
of the nurtefi finishing their third ynir ^q n&t know any of th^? re- 
aourees of the city for ihe ewre of the poor- If we pould brannh out 
and get Bonie idea of things that ^vould fil the woman to go out and 
meet public conditions. T think that would b^ a step in the right diree- 
tiou. We keep the nur^o going the same rounds beeau^r it ii^ a benefit 
to the hospitaF. Thar, h right as far as tht? hospital i^ i^oncern^d^ but 
tfe^rcely fair to thr uurse The pnbliG pdueators are waking up to the 
idea thai they eu^mot j+pt^nd ro mneh time in post courses, Rome time 
during the senior nnrse's course she sbouLd be given ^ course in eani- 
tary hygiene and something ahonl eity govemnttnt, and along the 
liiie of advanced irork ehe could do. 

Miss Dyke : Kol long afio T had a long talk with "Dr. Cabot, aJid 
he said that ihe threi^ years' course that a nurse had unfitted h«r for 
Siifioessfnl work, beeause the powei^ of the initiative -wei-e represaod 
iu her \n 50 per cent, of Ihe schools T do dot think it h tme. But, 
Btilt^ TfVr Cahot ha>r slated and printed in writing [hal Ihe training 
of the nurae teaches h*^r to follow ihe le^id and crusW all po^^er of 
initifilive. 

Miss Gunn: Dr. Cabol mak^s that *:riliclsm^ Miss Dyken but 
hf niovf^s heaven and earth lo get trained nurses as his soeifi] workers- 

Mi^s Raudal : A doctor^ Madam Presiclt^nl, got-s (hrongh his regu- 
lar course of four to fivi> years, and he is then fiTled for general prac- 
tice. Th*?n if he wiEdhe» Id bec^ome a sispciahst hf^ takf^s i\ post-graduate 
couFBe. T think that three years is not ron long to fit the nnrBe for her 
work, and then she If* in ?* condition Id absorb thcsi; special coxirfiej^ 
nnd make a ftucct.^5^ along her own line. 

Misa Madden: Madam President^ [ think there is a danger of 
filling the Ihrc^ yeHr^ ivith loo many subjeels^ and giving the pupil 
^nrse a siuattmng of various; things. It scea:iB to rae that the three 
years' tourae is neceflKflry for the nurse, and, an Mi^s Handat saya^ a 
further couraf can h^ Isiken bfer on. 1 think the teachers of nurses 
have difficulty in jj^clting in subjects that are necessary to the pupil's 
e^iueation. 1 fancy a well-mapped-out preliminary eoursf^, taking scien- 
tific subjects in that way. and Ihen spend, say, (wo ycitra in the lioa-

work is over^ 1 do not think \^■e work our uui:&{±s too h^rd in Ncw-

Miss Maddeu: Soiiii?one h^s said that imrRfya are f*ul off t^vt^n 
from i^omg to ohureh. Our nuifli.s are able t^ altend cliui^h bulh 
marning ajid eveniiiE Besidi* that, f df> nol Ihmk that our treatment 
of nursca in the (mining school is thv reason for rhe ]atk of upplicanis. 
I think the great and trenieudoiis giou^lh nF trHining.'ii^huoliJ is v^^spons- 
ible for that. Perhaps in 1S60 there may have heeu 25 schools. I do 
nol think there were as many aa Thai inlhe United Slatea. and now 
thei^ are between IlpOOO and 12,000. I have known nurses a good 
long time. I have trained three yeara mth tbem, aud sitice then T 
have been tfitiching them and living wilh Ihein^ and I do nol ace the 
falling off that is J^poken of. I think "the Falling off m&y b<^ found 
among all lines of work. In the United Slates parthsularly there has 
been a great deal of ertlieisin made along ibis linf*. "We might gay^ do 
the enllegea educate? I have known -^voinen wilh Tl-A. degrees who 
oonid not spell, and we ooca^iprinlly have nurses who cannot spell 
1 do not think we are alone in not fully educating the nurseSn I adTuit 
that edncation is nol as good fls it should he. but 1 think that f^diication 
along all lini^a is nnaalisfactory, and ^v^ welcome anything tha) is 
going to niake it better. 

Miss Gnnn] In regard to the shortage of applics^nrs. I think thai 
the large hospitals sire not having as much shortage as the sinaUtr 
ones. 1 think that the young women like to go to (he Jarge eeujres 
to Jt'ain. This leaves the small hospit^l^ lueking. On [he other hand, 
not so many years ago there were very ff*w voealionfl fot women, while 
at t\}\' prp&ent time there are voentions opening up every day ihat 
women may enter. Ar Miss Maddni says, the hos^^ilals ^n^ growing in 
nmnhei" and ai^^f- every year, and I think 1hat. taken with th<- num- 
ber of vocations opening np. would perhaps aeeonn) for the abort- 
age" of applicants in the training sebool. T do feel ihiil jk Jhi^ reason, 
and i do not feel il is Ihe fault of education u\ llie Iraining sehoola. 

President: There is one litll** adjeclive there thai wa^ over- 
looked, and that is desirable applicants. From the lists and from 
the slatisties I was able to get. we found ihal the increaa^^ in the 
number of appSieanfs was pt-rTeetly wondcrl'uK bnt it is rhe decrease 
in the nxnnber of desirable applicants ihat tho i^ommiUee wnnts lo

1 think ail aides of the question should be dealt ivith. 

1 think it would bP a great miafske to pick out any hospitals. 
The hufit thing would be lo have a letter sent by the secretary to the 
secretary of each Provincial Association, a^^kiDg that a committee be 
appointed, with r^ertain represents tivej^ of superinleniEents of training

at all. We may get narrow And see ihinga entirely from oui" own

Miss Gunn: I think it would be well if we would decide to ask 
each Provincial Association to appoint a committee forming one Iflrge 
committee for tiic Dominion, each poiumittee To bring in reeomnieuda-

Miss Croj^byj JIadam Prtsidpnl, if yon have rhe editor of ^Tba

pj^obiems that loom largest in her vision, but if each province had 
some one who wouJd contribute, like a certain month— I think the
